Ödön Lechner

Local nameSzent László-templom
LocationKőbánya, Budapest, Hungary

Ödön Lechner was a Hungarian architect, one of the early representatives of the Hungarian Secession movement, called szecesszió in Hungarian, which was related to Art Nouveau in the rest of Europe. He decorated his buildings with Zsolnay tile patterns inspired by old Magyar and Turkic folk art. The Magyars were a people that came from the east, which explains the eastern-like appearance of Lechner's buildings. He combines this with the use of materials modern for his time, such as iron.

His work was submitted in 2008 for inclusion on the World Heritage List.
